CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This patent application claims priority to U.S. provisional application No. 61/062,172, filed on Jan. 23, 2008, and entitled “Optimized CD40 Antibodies and Methods of Using the Same”, the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference in their entirety.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to optimized proteins that target CD40, and their application, particularly for therapeutic purposes.

BACKGROUND

B cells: B cells are lymphocytes that play a large role in the humoral immune response. They are produced in the bone marrow of most mammals, and represent 5-15% of the circulating lymphoid pool. The principal function of B cells is to make antibodies against various antigens, and are an essential component of the adaptive immune system.

The human body makes millions of different types of B cells each day that circulate in the blood and lymph performing the role of immune surveillence. B cells, also referred to as B lymphocytes, do not produce antibodies until they become fully activated. Each B cell has a unique receptor protein (referred to as the B cell receptor (BCR)) on its surface that will bind to one particular antigen. The BCR is a membrane-bound immunoglobulin, and it is this molecule that allows the distinction of B cells from other types of lymphocytes, as well as being the main receptor involved in B-cell activation. Once a B cell encounters its cognate antigen and receives an additional signal from a T helper cell, it can further differentiate into the various types of B cells listed below. The B cell may either become one of these cell types directly or it may undergo an intermediate differentiation step, the germinal center reaction, where the B cell will hypermutate the variable region of its immunoglobulin gene and possibly undergo class switching.

B-cell development occurs through several stages, each stage representing a change in the genome content at the antibody loci. The stages of B-cell development include Progenitor B cells, Early Pro-B cells, Late Pro-B cells, Large Pre-B cells, Small Pre-B cells, Immature B cells, and Mature B cells.

Mature B Cells Can be Divided into Four Major Types:

B-1 cells express CD5, a marker usually found on T cells. B-1 cells also express IgM in greater quantities than IgG. They secrete natural low affinity polyreactive antibodies found in the serum and often have specificities directed toward self-antigens, and common bacterial polysaccharides. B-1 cells are present in low numbers in the lymph nodes and spleen and are instead found predominantly in the peritoneal and pleural cavities. B-2 cells are the conventional B cells to which most texts refer. They reside in bone marrow, spleen, and lymph nodes. They are short-lived, and when triggered by antigens may differentiate into IgG-producing memory B cells. In the course of these antibody responses IgG may undergo substantial affinity maturation.

Plasma B cells (also known as plasma cells) are large B cells that have been exposed to antigen and produce and secrete large amounts of antibodies, which assist in the destruction of microbes by binding and facilitating targeting by phagocytes, as well as activation of the complement system. Plasma cells are sometimes referred to as antibody factories.

Memory B cells are formed from activated B cells that are specific to the antigen encountered during the primary immune response. These cells live for a long time, and can respond quickly following a second exposure to the same antigen.

When a B cell fails in any step of the maturation process, it will die by a mechanism called apoptosis. If it recognizes self-antigen during the maturation process, the B cell will become suppressed (known as anergy) or undergo apoptosis. B cells are continuously produced in the bone marrow, but only a small portion of newly made B cells survive to participate in the long-lived peripheral B-cell pool.

In recent years, data have emerged suggesting that B lymphocytes play a broader role in immune responses and are not merely the passive recipients of signals that result in differentiation into antibody-producing plasma cells. Along with their traditional roles as antigen presenting cells and precursors of antibody-producing plasma cells, B cells have also been found to regulate antigen presenting cells (APCs) and T-cell functions, produce cytokines, and express receptor/ligand pairs that previously had been thought to be restricted to other cell types. Described herein are novel antibodies that have been optimized against B cells and methos of using them.

SUMMARY

OF THE INVENTION

The present invention is directed to antibodies and methods of using the same. In certain aspects, the antibodies include a variant Fc region. In further embodiments, the antibodies are humanized. The present invention is further directed to methods of using the antibodies in various disease indications.

In one aspect, the present invention is directed to an antibody that binds CD40, wherein said antibody comprises at least one modification in the constant region relative to a parent antibody. In one embodiment, the antibody of the invention binds with altered affinity to an Fc receptor or alters effector function as compared to the parent antibody.

In certain aspects, the modification is an amino acid. The modification can be at a position selected from the group consisting of 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 227, 228, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234, 235, 236, 237, 238, 239, 240, 241, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 249, 255, 258, 260, 262, 263, 264, 265, 266, 267, 268, 269, 270, 271, 272, 273, 274, 275, 276, 278, 280, 281, 282, 283, 284, 285, 286, 288, 290, 291, 292, 293, 294, 295, 296, 297, 298, 299, 300, 301, 302, 303, 304, 305, 313, 317, 318, 320, 322, 323, 324, 325, 326, 327, 328, 329, 330, 331, 332, 333, 334, 335, 336, and 337, wherein numbering is according to the EU index.

In other aspects, the modification is a glycoform modification that reduces the level of fucose relative to the parent antibody. In still other aspects, the invention is directed to a composition including a plurality of glycosylated antibodies, wherein about 80-100% of the glycosylated antibodies in the composition comprise a mature core carbohydrate structure which lacks fucose.

In a further embodiment, the antibody reduces binding to FcγRIIb as compared to the parent anti-CD40 antibody.

In another aspect, the invention is directed to an antibody that binds CD40, includes a heavy chain and/or a light chain, and has an increased affinity to the FcγRIIIa receptor as compared to the parent antibody. The heavy chain has a CDR1 comprising the amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 16, 22, and 28, a CDR2 comprising an amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 17, 23, and 29, and a CDR3 comprising an amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 18, 24, and 30. The light chain has a CDR1 comprising an amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 19, 25, and 31, a CDR2 comprising an amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 20, 26, and 32, and a CDR3 comprising an amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 21, 27, and 33.

In further variations, the antibody has a variable heavy chain sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 10, 12, 14, and 16-19 and/or a variable light chain sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 11, 13, 15 and 20-22.
